Details of Disappearance

Beitzel was last seen getting into the backseat of her husband's car at a party in Glen Ellyn, Illinois on July 14, 1979. She and her husband left a party together, with him driving, and she has never been heard from again.

The following Monday, her husband drove Beitzel's car to work instead of his own vehicle which he usually drove. He told their three children and the rest of the family she had simply left him. She has never been heard from again and all her belongings were left behind.

When Beitzel's brother died in 2013, Beitzel was listed as having predeceased him. She has five other siblings. Her sister believes she met with foul play. Her case remains unsolved.
